PennDOT’s District 1 Declares Themselves Ready For Winter

November 21, 2017

At an event in Waterford on Monday, PennDOT District 1 officials declared their operations ready for winter.

Winter shifts for plow and salt trucks begin next week, and district executive William Petit said maintenance units in District 1’s six-county coverage area “are ready for the snow and ice we know are coming.”

District 1 has 185 plow trucks, and officials plan for an overall average of 83 inches of snow – from an average of 39 inches in Mercer County to 108 inches in Warren County.

The district’s budget for services for this winter stands at $18 million, although Petit said $29.7 million was spent last winter.  Workers spread more than 75,000 tons of salt and about 78,000 tons of anti-skid material last year.

In case you were wondering, those winter truck shifts run from 4:00 AM until noon, and from noon until 8:00 PM.  If plowing or salting is required during the night, “shifts are held over or called in early to provide 24-hour coverage.”
